Yet another festival
Posted by T Rex on November 15, 2007
Since Philadelphia is in my backyard it would be cool if this happens but there are just too many reasons why it’s a bad idea. First being there are just too many damn festivals.
“The Fairmont Park’s commission voted to put the proposed Philadelphia festival on hold. There are two main contenders to organize the event: the Texas-based C3 Presents, the country’s third largest concert promoter, which produces Austin City Limits and Lollapalooza, and Electric Factory Concerts, which books numerous concerts in the region and is about to celebrate its 40th anniversary.”
“The commission has heard from representatives of the Mann Center for the Performing Arts, the Philadelphia Zoo, and the Please Touch Museum about the potential damage a festival of this magnitude, in the center of the park, could do.”
